    What brand of flip , or is it homemade ? I have pics of mine with Echobit flip on it . I got more like 5 inches or so , and my springs did not sag to begin with .

    sorry the pics dont work, I am going to be using the 2wd hangers for the flip, I was just wondering how many degrees the pinion rotated up.
    Thanks

    I have done a few shackle flips, I always use the 4 degree shims, look on any drive shaft website and they will explane in detail how to measure the angle,

    I don't know how many degrees you'll get, but I have a 4" ORD flip with 4" Tuff Country rear leaves. My rear driveshaft is 58" long and I needed to shim my pinion back down just a little.
